His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his 
annual message to the Council as fol- 
lows : 

April 11, 1904. 
To the Honorahle the City Council: 

Gentlemen — For the seven years I 
have had the honor to serve as Mayor 
of Chicago, of all the questions with 
which the city government has been 
called upon to deal, the traction ques- 
tion has easily held the first place in 
importance. During my first adminis- 
tration the chief cause for alarm lay in 
the aggressiveness of certain traction 
interests in their attempts to fdrce 
by questionable methods a settle- 
ment inimical to the public welfare; in 
these years it was only by the exercise 
of a supreme effort the people prevented 
the consummation of a franchise grant 
which if made would have weighed heav- 
ily upon the community for more than 
two generations to come. For the past 
five years the traction companies have 
practiced every strategy shrewd coun- 
sel has beeii able to suggest in finessing 
for a technical advantage and to se- 
cure by stealth and indirection benefits 
they would not dare openly to ask. In 
the meanwhile, the public, discouraged 



< 



April 11, 



1904 



and made suspicious by the constant 
shifting of ground of those to whom it 
has looked for leadership and guidance, 
and worn to desperation by the wretch- 
edness of the service with which it has 
been accommodated, finally in the so- 
called "little ballot" voted in the last 
municipal election, has made demand 
for a settlement of a character which 
j may- well tax your ingenuity in grant- 
ing. 

I may be pardoned if in attempting 
to clear the path the public has bidden 
its officials to follow and to take such 
share of constructive work in legisla- 
tion as an administrative officer may 
permit liimself I recount as briefly as 
it may be done some of the successive 
steps which have led to the position the 
traction question occupies today. 

In messages submitted to your Hon- 
orable Body outlining what appeared to 
me to be the necessary features to be 
observed in undertaking a settlement of 
this important question I have centered 
upon three salient points which, if the 
question were to be settled aright, 
seemed to my Avay of thinking absolute 
essentials. Let me repeat them. The 
municipal experience of the past brought 
forcibly to the front the necessity of 
eliminating from all future considera- 
tion of the problem the rights claimed 
by the companies under the legislative 
act of 1865, commonly known as the 
1)9- year act. The general experience of 
this and other municipalities in dealing 
with kindred questions and the constant 
danger that in the granting of franchises 
public rights might be waived or lost 
through the weakness of officials or the 
influence upon them of sordid considera- 
tions dictated the resort to a referendum 
to the people in any proposed settle- 
ment as the surest warrant and safest 
guaranty of the public interests being 
adequately protected. The firm convic- 
tion that sound policy at no distant date 
would demand a public ownership of 
great municipal utilities dictated the 



necessity for the passage of an enabling 
bill by the State Legislature, authoriz- 
ing cities to own and operate street car 
lines, as an absolute prerequisite to a 
settlement in the interest of the public. 

In the belief these things were right 
and necessary, at an early date in the 
controversy I made public statement 
that no grant of franchise would fully 
meet my views until an enabling bill 
had been enacted into law, nor in which 
a referendum vote was not afforded to 
the people, nor in which there w^as not 
a distinct v/aiver by the interested com- 
pany of all the rights and privileges it 
claimed by virtue of the 99-year act. 

At once I was charged with adopting 
obstructive tactics. The public was as- 
sured the one purpose controlling my 
official actions was a desire to keep the 
traction question alive to be used for 
personal political advantage. The mem- 
bers of your Honorable Body were ad- 
vised day after day to ignore the de- 
mands and sjiggestions made by me as 
unworthy and to settle the question 
without reference to whatever views I 
might entertain. The result of this ad- 
vice is what might reasonably have been 
expected. A considerable public element 
was educated to withhold all weight 
from the opinions I held upon the ques- 
tion; but more disastrous still the hold- 
ers of traction stocks and securities 
were encouraged in the belief that by 
eliminating me from the field of official 
activity it would be easy for them to 
obtain a franchise of the character they 
most desired. 

Had those who preached these dogmas 
remained consistent in their criticisms 
iL would not be excusable foi- r.ie to call 
attention to the criticisms now. Gradu- 
ally, however, the suggestions made by 
me were accepted even by the bitterest 
of my honest hostile critics, until finally 
after the municipal election of 1903 
there grew up a practical unanimity of 
sentiment that in a proper settlement 



April 11, 



6 



1904 



the fundamentals just mentioned must 
be observed. 

In the meanwhile many citizens had 
been educated to believe that in all the 
years this question has been under con- 
sideration I have served no other aim 
than to obstruct the way to an accept- 
able settlement. This idea is prevalent 
today. Selfish interests, assert the ad- 
ministration, is unwilling to allow a safe 
solution of the problem. Hostile par- 
tisanship urges the obstructive tactics 
of the executive as the one barrier to 
decent public service. Thoughtless critics 
attack the administration for its failure 
successfully to grapple with the ques- 
tion. Were one and all of these critics 
to be fair and candid they would be 
forced to admit that since the Mueller 
bill was enacted into law and since the 
referendum and the waiver of the 99- 
year act have been given general ac- 
ceptance as essential to a final and just 
determination of the dispute, the real 
and only obstructionists have been the 
traction companies themselves. For one 
year the traction companies have 
blocked the way to settlement and the 
failure of your Honorable Body to sub- 
mit a fair extension ordinance to the 
people for their approval or disapproval 
in the last election has been due to the 
refusal of the one company to accede 
to the righteous demands of this Coun- 
cil for proper compensation and the rec- 
ognition of the popular outcry for an 
early opportunity to acquire its lines 
and the resort of the other company 
to the federal courts for protection 
from what in the beginning it was 
'pleased to term the hostile and anarchis- 
tic attitude of the city government. 

For these reasons I wish to protest 
with all the power at my command 
against the charge that my position has 
been merely that of an obstructionist, 
unless those making the charge hold it 
to be obstructive to stand consistently 
and unwaveringly for what one is con- 
vinced is right, fair and just. 



Any effort to bring about a settle- 
ment of the traction question is seri- 
ously embarrassed by the difference in 
the positions occupied by the two prin- 
cipal companies, due to conditions for 
which the municipality is in no way 
responsible and over which indeed it 
has no control. The one company has 
been before a committee of this Council 
seeking a franchise grant covering a 
term of twenty years, the second com- 
pany has appealed to the federal courts 
on the theory it does not require a 
franchise. extension in order to continue 
in business in this community for many 
years to come. While members of the 
Local Transportation Committee have 
been arguing with the representatives 
of the first company for adequate com- 
pensation and the reserved right for the 
municipality to acquire possession of 
its properties upon payment of a fair 
price at the end of ten years from the 
date of the grant, the staff of the Cor- 
poration Counsel's office has been en- 
gaged in a hard fought legal battle with 
the other company to preserve the citi- 
zens' rights in the streets and to pre- 
vent a construction of the 99-year act 
which would bind the municipality hand 
and foot for decades to come. 

Within the past few weeks new offi- 
cers of the federal court have been pub- 
licly quoted as desirous of meeting city 
officials in an effort to solve the prob-' 
lem. As yet these officials have no 
means of knowing the character of the 
proposals that might be made. I do 
not take it to be the duty or the right 
of an executive officer in the absence 
of instructions from the legislative 
branch of the city government officially 
to undertake a first discussion of ques- 
tions the decision of which properly and 
under the law is vested in the City 
Council. From the public statements 
that have been made, however, it would 
appear to be the desire of the court 
officers to undertake a settlement along 
lines that would preserve unimpaired 



J 



April 11, 

the rights claimed under the act of 
1865. The members of this body as 
well as the city's executive both by 
public pledges and by the repeated man- 
date of the citizens rest under a solemn 
obligation to require a waiver of these 
rights as a prerequisite to a franchise 
grant. 

The positions occupied by the two 
wmpanies might perhaps not improper- 
ly be outlined as follows: The one 
company is willing to surrender its al- 
leged rights under the 99-year act in 
consideration of a twenty year grant 
of franchise, while the second company 
stands ready to forego a definite long 
term grant in consideration of an offi- 
cial acknowledgment of its 99-year act 
claims. With neither of these proposi- 
; tions may the city properly agree. It 
must not be forgotten that the public by 
its votes on the "little ballot" has 
served notice on its officials of its de- 
sire for early if not indeed immediate 
municipal ownership of the traction 
properties. Previous Councils by the 
reports of the Street Eailway Commis- 
sion and the Local Transportation com- 
mittee have given expression to a de- 
cided belief in the necessity of a re- 
quirement, that at the end of ten years 
from the grant of franchise and there- 
after through the full term of the grant, 
the city shall have the right upon pay- 
ment of proper and fair compensation 
,to assume the control of the properties. 
Public officials and the best public senti- 
ment for some years have been of one 
mind in demanding a waiver of the 99- 
year act rights, if any exist, as essen- 
tial in an extension ordinance. 

The controversy prior to the last city 
eection was certainly complicated 
enough. This election, however, has 
added further complication to an in- 
volved situation. In this election a vote 
was taken on two points directly con- 
nected with the traction question and 
each proposition was carried by a ma- 
jority of those voting thereon in approxi- 
mately the ratio of two and a half to 



1904 

one, and by a majority of all those vot- 
ing for the various aldermanic candi- 
dates. The first of these propositions is 
a demand that your Honorable Body 
proceed at once to acquire municipal con- 
trol of the lines of surface 
transportation; the second proposi- 
tion is a demand that in the in- 
terim of securing this control the city 
give the companies a bare license to 
occupy the streets. The municipality is 
now confronted with the problem of find- 
ing the means by which these demands 
of the electorate may be granted. 

The suggestion has been made that in 
order to test the ability of the munici- 
pality successfully to operate street 
railways, the city make use of the lines 
covered by the franchises of the Chi- 
cago Passenger Railway Company which 
are about to expire, for the purposes of 
the experiment. As from time to time 
the other franchises of this company run 
out, the suggestion is that the city add 
them to the municipally operated sys- 
tem, gradually extending the service un- 
til a thorough test of public operation 
has been made. This suggestion comes 
from two distinctly separate sources 
and its purposes must be therefore con- 
sidered in a double light. If the desire 
be merely to test the ability of the City 
of Chicago to engage profitably and effi- 
ciently in the surface transportation 
business, the suggestion is admirable. 
If, on the other hand, it is sought to 
impress the public with the appearance 
of a municipal ownership victory, and 
on the strength of it to claim the accom- 
plishment of great things, the object 
would perhaps be gained, but the pur- 
pose of it would be most unworthy. If 
the idea be by this means finally and 
effectually to inaugurate general pub- 
lic ownership of all the traction utili- 
ties of this city, the suggestion is Uto- 
pian rather than practical. 

Even with the city operating all the 
franchises of the Chicago Passenger 
Railway Company the prospect of its 
obtaining control of all the other su¥- 



April 11, 



1904 



face lines would be as remote and as 
beset with difficulties as it is today. As 
was set up by the city's counsel in the 
case now being tried in the local fed- 
eral court, one of the strongest points 
in the city's favor is the fact that, even 
should the validity of the act of 1865 
be sustained, by no stretch of the legal 
imagination could the benign influence 
of that act be made to cover the fran- 
chises granted by the city to the Chi- 
cago Passenger Railway Company. By 
a judicious use of these expiring rights 
it has been hoped the stockholders of the 
Union- Traction Company might be 
brought to a reasonable view of their 
obligations to the citizens at large. 
Should they remain recalcitrant the city 
has counted upon using to the utmost 
limit its control over the streets covered 
by the Chicago Passenger Railway Com- 
pany's franchises. 

For myself I may be permitted to say 
I believe in municipal ownership not as 
an ephemeral fad, nor as a catch-penny 
device for currying public favor, but as 
a practical essential to good municipal 
government. ]\Iy views on this question 
have been outlined in previous messages 
to your Honorable Body, and need not 
be repeated here. Because of these be- 
liefs I do not care for bogus municipal 
ownership; I am not willing to accept in 
lieu of the real article municipal owner- 
ship husks devoid both of substance and 
nourishment. Nor am I willing to prac- 
tice a municipal ownership confidence 
game upon the public. To meet my ap- 
proval a municipal ownership plan must 
be soDiething more than a hazy dream 
or a succession of high sounding words 
and phrases signifying nothing. I do 
not propose to chase a will-o'-the-wisp 
with tlie comforting delusion that a sub- 
stantial object is in view. In the old 
German fable i^ is said that" wherever 
the rainbow comes in contact with the 
earth a pot of gold is to be found. In 
this prosaic twentieth century one may 
well be excused from chasing rainbows 
with the idea that merely because thg 



rainbow is in distant view great ingots 
of gold are awaiting him who can find 
the spot where the bow of hope touches 
the solid, substantial earth. 

Moreover, when municipal ownership 
is really to be had, I for one do not wish 
to pay for it more than it is really 
worth. This in the only true analysis 
is a business proposition, pure and sim- 
ple. When it is obtained, if it is to be 
a success, it will be operated as a busi- 
ness venture for the benefit and profit 
of the public, and otherwise it should 
not be operated at all. The question 
must always be. Will it pay? For it 
the municipality must not pay a price 
upon Avhich the public operation shall 
fail to pay a dividend. 

In considering the question of a trac- 
tion settlement I take it a plan should 
be adopted which would be a fair busi- 
ness proposition for the companies and 
so fair to the municipality in the serv- 
ice it offered and the compensation re- 
turns it promised, that the citizens, when 
given an opportunity to voice their sen- 
timents, would place upon it the stamp 
of their approval. The plan should af- 
ford a guaranty to the public that at a 
certain stipulated time before the expira- 
tion of the full grant, and upon payment 
of a fair price, the municipality could 
acquire ownership of the properties, if 
it elected so to do. As an assurance to 
the public of the genuineness of the offi- 
cial plans for ultimate public ownership 
the compensation to be paid should 
either all be applied to a safely guarded 
sinking fund account to be held as a 
nucleus of a fund with which to pur- 
chase the properties, or a part should be 
applied to the cleaning of streets and 
alleys and the remainder to the sinking 
fund account. I believe, even in view 
of the recent vote for immediate pub- 
lic control of the traction properties, an 
ordinance of this character submitted 
today to the people would secure a vote 
of popular approval. A proposition such 
as this should satisfy the popular de- 
mand for early public ownership, because 



April 11,. 

it would make sucli ownership possible 
wlienever public interest in the man- 
agement of public affairs would have re- 
sulted in such an improvement of con- 
ditions as would make such ownership 
profitable. I firmly believe a majority 
of the citizens would consent to such a 
settlement rather than leave matters in 
their present unsettled state, subject 
the riding public to a continuation of 
the present wretched service, and aban- 
don the entire question to the uncertain 
decision of the courts of law and the 
possible manipulations of future public 
officials. 

The city is in the unfortunate dilem- 
ma of being unable to deal with both 
companies along identical lines. From 
the effort which has been made to sup- 
port its claims it would appear one of 
the companies looks upon its 99-year 
rights as its chief asset, the principal 
property it possesses with which 
to bolster its fallen fortunes. 
The public demands a waiver 
of these rights, ' the city officials 
are pledged again and again to exact 
• this waiver. It is desired, moreover, to 
find an ultimate settlement of the ques- 
tion in its entirety, a settlement promis- 
ing in the not distant future an unified 
surface transportation system under pub- 
lic control. It is here the apparently 
insurmountable difficulty confronts us. 
However, while it may be unfortunate 
that both companies cannot deal with 
the city along the same lines and to 
their individual profit, the fault is r.ot 
of the municipality. What good reason 
is there against the city demanding an 
identical settlement, settling Avith jeither 
company which will accept its terms and 
withholding a settlement from the other 
company until it comes to see the error 
of its ways? 

Two possibilities would therefore seem 
to present themselves. The first is to 
draft an ordinance along the lines of 
the so-called tentative ordinance of the 
Local Transportation Committee, insert- 
ing a provision for a fair and reason- 



1904 

able rate of compensation, as well as a 
provision enabling the city at the end of 
ten years from the date of the grant, 
upon payment of a fair price, to acquire 
the lines, with a further proviso calling 
for the creation of a sinking fund ac- 
count of all or a part of the compensa- 
tion . moneys to be used ultimately as 
purchase money, offer the ordinance to 
each company, and if either or both ^ 
accept, arrange that the ordinance shall 
be submitted 'for popular approval or 
disapproval at the fall elections. 

The second plan calls for laying aside 
the tentative ordinance and for the 
drafting of a new ordinance along new 
lines, offering to pay the companies in 
Mueller law certificates the full value 
of their present tangible property, the 
value of all their unexpired franchises, 
excepting their alleged rights under the 
act of 1865, the value of the improve- 
ments and betterments to be made nec- 
essary by a complete rehabilitation of 
the system.s, finally making a lease of 
the lines to the companies upon a fair 
rental basis, the entire ordinance to be 
conditioned upon an absolute waiver of 
all the rights the companies accepting it 
may claim under the 99-year act. This 
second proposition under the terms of 
the Mueller law itself would of necessity 
be submitted for popular approval at the 
next following election. The rental 
moneys paid by the companies would be 
deposited in a sinking fund account 
with which to retire the certificates at 
maturity. 

In either proposition the saving clause 
would be the necessity for the ratifica- 
tion of the action of your Honorable 
Body by the public when the referendum 
vote was had. Each proposition provides 
for the publish ownership which the peo- 
ple in the "little ballot" have demanded, 
Each proposition offers fair terms of set- 
tlement to the traction companies. Each 
proposition would prepare the way for 
a betterment of the atrocious service to 
which the riding public of Chicago is to- 
day subjected.

In a decision in a recent case brought 
by the city to establish its right to issue 
bonds for the purpose of refunding its 
judgment debt, the Supreme Court of 
the State classified the existing indebt- 
edness of the municipality, separating 
that part of the debt which comes with- 
in the constitutional limitation from 
that part which is outside of the limita- 
tion. As a result of this classification 
the city finds itsplf able to sell bonds 
for corporate purposes in the sum of 
$4,000,000.00, in addition to the bonds 
which it may sell for the purpose of re- 
funding its judgment debts. With the 
proceeds of these bonds it will be possible 
for the city to undertake much Avork of 
urgent importance. Prudence forbids 
the application of any part of these 
moneys to other than permanent im- 
provements. In the face of extreme 
pressure the last Council acquitted it- 
self well in the practical unanimity with 
which it voiced its determination prop- 
erly to husband these funds. 

In a previous message to your Hon- 
orable Body I have said: 

"In my message of 1899 I dwelt at 
length upon the necessity of an in- 
crease in the bonded debt of Chicago, 
as well as upon the safeguards which 
should be thrown around the moneys 
raised by such means. Each issue of 
bonds, I suggested, should be devoted 
specifically and unalterably to a given 
purpose; bonds should be issued only 
as the money to be raised by them was 
needed; the moneys obtained by their 



sale should be expended under the di- 
rect and constant care of a board of 
overseers or directors appointed for 
the specific purpose of jealously guard- 
ing against a possible misapplication 
of the funds, as well as against the 
reckless and unnecessary issuing of 
bonds." 

While the subject then under discus- 
sion was a comprehensive scheme of is- 
suing bonds for all permanent improve- 
ments, and while the amount of bonds 
which the city is now able to issue will 
be exhausted by the all important work 
of lowering the La Salle street and 
Washington street tunnels, together with 
the work on new bridges, free bath 
houses, new engine houses and police 
stations already planned and provided 
for in this year's appropriation bill, 
public confidence in the ability of the 
city to handle with prudence and econ- 
omy great sums of money to be raised by 
bond issues would be materially pro- 
moted by the appointment of a citizens' 
commission which should have super- 
vision over the expenditure of the pro- 
ceeds of bond sales and whose advice 
and counsel would be sought and heed- 
ed in all the details connected with the 
raising of and caring- for sinking fund 
accounts. 

Unfortunately for the city, the op- 
portunity to issue new bonds comes at 
an inopportune time, if we consider the 
condition of the money market alone. 
During the past seven years the city has 
marketed bond issues as follows :

In September, 1899, the city sold 
bonds at 3.12 per cent, the lowest rate 
at which it has sold bonds in its terri- 
tory, while the highest rate it has paid 
in seven years has been 3.25 per cent. 
At the present time many circumstances 
have combined to make money dear and 
the interest rate at which the city will 
be able to market bonds is probtematical. 
The best v^dvice the city is able to obtain 
holds out no promise of an early cheap- 
ening of money. Because of its necessi- 
ties even in the face of an adverse money 
market, the city must attempt to place 
bonds. In order to better the market, 
negotiations were instituted by the 
Comptroller to secure the acceptance of 
the Municipal Bonds of Chicago, by the 



Treasurer of the United States, as au- 
thorized and recognized deposits for the 
purposes fixed by the acts of Congress. 
As a result of these negotiations, the 
Treasury Department finally wrote, oh 
March 24, 1904, saying: "Bonds of the 
City of Chicago are acceptable the same 
as other municipal and state bonds for 
the purposes above mentioned," thus es- 
tablishing the bonds of this city on the 
same plane of value and acceptability 
as those of New York City, Boston, and 
the other great municipalities of the 
country. In the appropriation bill of 
this year the following improvements 
were provided for, to be p^id for out of 
the proceeds of bond sales :

In addition thereto the city is faced 
with the necessity for immediate action 
in the lowering of the tunnels. Aside 
from the probable action of Congress in 
ordering the lowering or removal of the 
tunnels as obstructions to navigation, 
the demands of the river interests, as 
well as the general welfare and pros- 
perity of the city, insistently demand 
a river channel with a depth capable of 
acommodating the modern navigation 
of the great lakes. Healtli and decency, 
moreover, demand of the city a sanitary 
■ method of disposal for the city's gar- 
bage. Present methods are not only 
barbarous but economically unjustifiable, 



and no single reform should command 
your attention with greater force than 
the institution of a sanitary scheme for 
disposing of the city's refuse and gar- 
bage. 

The necessity for applying the pro- 
ceeds of bond sales to the development 
of the Sanitary District's water power 
has been eliminated by the- action of the 
last Legislature, which, largely upon the 
advice of city officials and uj)on the 
promise of Trustees of the Sanitary Dis- 
trict that the water power when devel- 
oped should be placed at the disposal of 
the various municipalities comprising 
the district, passed a bill enabling the 



1 / 

/ 



T 



April 11, 

district among other things to contract 
for the development of the water power 
at Lockport. This contract has been 
let and the work itself is in progress. 
No honest objection can be raised to giv- 
ing the water power to the taxpayers of 
the Sanitary District-upon proper terms. 
No honest argument can be urged in fa- 
vor of bestowing upon private capital 
advantages paid for by and belonging 
to the people. Your Honorable Body 
should invite the co-operation of press 
and public in an insistent demand that 
tliF rights of the people who pay the 
taxes in the district be recognized and 
respected, and that the water power 
when developed be placed at the disposal 
of the public in whose interests the bill 
authorizing the raising of revenue by 
additional taxation ostensibly was 
passed, and whose taxes are paying for 
the work. 

At the last session of the Legisla- 
ture, after a bitter fight and at the de- 
mand of an aroused public, a bill was 
passed giving municipalities, under cer- 
tain restrictions and limitations, the 
right to own and operate street rail- 
ways. This act, in accordance with its 
provisions, was submitted to the elec- 
torate at the last municipal election and 
received the hearty endorsement of the 
voters. The passage of the bill marked 
a distinct step in advance; it has es- 
tablished, moreover, a precedent for fu- 
ture action of the same general charac- 
ter in respect to other utilities. 

I would urge your Honorable Body to 
direct your Committee on State Legisla- 
tion to prepare for presentation to the 
next Legislature bills providing for pub- 
lie ownership of gas and electric utili- 
ties and authorizing the issuance of cer- 
tificates of the same character as the 
Mueller bill certificates to finance the 
establishment of the systems. 

Were the city able to issue bonds in a 
large amount I would urge action 
under the recent opinion of the Corpora 
tion Counsel in which he holds the city 
has the inherent right to sell gas and 



14 



1904 



electric current tc its citizens. While 
awaiting action on the part of the Leg- 
islature it would be expedient to direct 
the City Electrician 'to proceed at once 
to sell surplus electric current which 
can be developed in the various electric 
stations during the day time and in 
this way invite a legal contest with 
the private companies by which the 
city's rights and powers may be adjudi- 
cated and learned. 

Your Committee on State Legislation 
should be directed to jjrepare a bill to be 
submitted to the next Legislature author- 
izing the municipality to regulate the 
price of gas. The city recently won a 
notable victory m the Supreme Court of 
the United States which recognizes that 
the gas company is subject to regula- 
tion. The power to regulate is vested 
either in the Legislature or ^the City 
Council. A decison of the local Federal 
Court holds this power to lie with flie 
Legislature, and while the case will be 
appealed and every effort will be madeto 
establish the authority of the municipal- 
ity to exercise this control, pending final 
adjudication it would be well for the 
city to move upon the Legislature and 
seek remedial legislation. 

The ordinances recently passed extend- 
ing the hour for closing dramshops 
from midnight until one o'clock and re- 
quiring that after that hour all blinds 
shall be drawn and a light kept burning, 
affording a clear and unobstructed view 
of the interior, will materially aid the 
police in enforcing the closing ordinance. 
The ordinance is now, to all intents and 
purposes, self-enforcing, and except in 
the cases of combination saloons and res- 
taurants the patrol sergeants and pa- 
trolmen would be utterly without ex- 
cuse or justification were evasions to be 
permitted. The old law was almost 
impossible of enforcement, in view of the 
limited number of the patrolmen. There 
was, moreover, an unquestioned popular 
demand for a later hour than midnight 
for dramshops to be kept open. It is 
difficult at best to enforce an ordinance 



April 11, 



15 



1904 



to which there is considerable public 
opposition; to enforce the old ordinance 
in face of public opposition and with a 
liimted police force was a practical im- 
possibility. The amendment advancing 
the hour for closing to one o'clock sat- 
isfies the public demand for longer hours 
than the old ordinance permitted, and 
the ordinance requiring the drawing of 
blinds enables each citizen to have notice 
of an attempted evasion of the law. 

A difficult task, engaging the atten- 
tion of the Police Department is the 
effort to break up the evil of race-horse 
oambling. The extent to which this vice 
has spread is difficult to estimate and 
is probably not fully understood by the 
citizens. The ticker ordinance, passed 
by the City Council at my suggestion, 
and the close scrutiny and rigorous 
treatment of saloons in which handbook'^ 
have been made has diminished this 
form of law violation to a material ex- 
tent. Handbooks today are being made 
in out of the way places and tlie tele- 
phone has taken the place of the tele- 
graph instrument in diffusing gambling 
information. The vice is pandered to 
by the publication in the daily press and 
in other ways of racing form cards, or 
what are vulgarly known as "dope 
sheets," giving the odds, riders, condi- 
tion of tracks, and other information 
calculated to aid the 'picking of win- 
ners" and to increase the unhealthy in- 
terest in this form of public gambling. 
These form cards should be strictly pro- 
hibited, if the vice is to be curtailed, and 
;J would recommend action leading to the 
necessary legislation. 

In the past year there have been many 
forms of investigation of the public serv- 
ice both on the part of officials and of 
volunteer bodies. In most instances criti- 
cism, fault-finding and attack seem to 
have been the only purposes sought. In 
the investigations which have been made, 
whether for laudable or ulterior aims, 
the fact seems to have been lost sight of 
that public servants are merely human 
beings, open to the same temptations, 



subject to the same failings, as other 
human beings, often intolerant as h\iman 
nature is intolerant of harsh criticism, 
eager as all human nature is eager for 
a word of commendation and praise, 
disheartened and made stubborn in the 
common human way by constant abuse 
and captious criticism, stimulated and 
encouraged to better effort in the same 
common human way by applause aiid 
words of approbation. 

For myself, I have always felt that 
the preponderance of good to ill result 
following upon honest investigation made 
such investigation rather to be welcomed 
than resented. Nevertheless, it should 
do no harm to point out that the general 
scheme of work which has suddenly 
grown so prevalent and popular would 
promote a healthier condition of' public 
aflfairs if an occasional investigation for 
good conditions were to be undertaken 
and if worthy and deserving public serv- 
ants were to receive an occasional <^x- 
pression of confidence. The good work 
of the Municipal Voters' League has 
been promoted by the generous and un- 
stinted credit given by the organization 
to exemplary service in the ranks of the 
City Council; improvement in the per- 
sonnel of this body has followed largely 
ztecause good work is recognized and ap- 
preciated. A like improvement in the 
general public service would be promoted 
by conscientious investigation which 
would not only register blame, where 
there was cause for blame, but bestow 
credit where credit was due. It is hard- 
ly conceivable that among all the thou- 
sands of city employes, both high and 
low, there are not many cases of worth 
and merit; yet, judged 'by the reports of 
investigations published from time to 
time, the city government is in the hands 
of the Philistines, and all chosen people 
are in the ranks of the investigators. 
If the purpose of these investigations is 
a betterment of conditions, let the bright 
side of public affairs be brought out 
as well as the dark; then not only will 
bad service be held up to obloquy and 



April 11,

1904 



opprobrium, but good service will re- 
ceiA^e the praise and encouragement it 
deserves. 

And in connection with this suggestion 
let it be emphasized again and again 
that the law is made not only to be en- 
forced, but to be observed and obeyed. 
It is not every critic of the public 
service who can honestly say: "My 
hands are clean; I am an observer of 
the law." 

In the recent election a proposition 
was presented on "the little ballot" call- 
ing for a change in the present method 
of choosing members of the Board of Ed- 
ucation. Without entering into a dis- 
cussion of the interests promoting the 
change from an appointive to an elective 
system, nor of the influences behind the 
move, let it be remembered that in all 
the hostile criticism of City Councils, 
County Boards, Drainage Boards, and 
Legislatures of the past generation, the 
general standard of the Board of Ed- 
ucation has remained excellent, and few 
scandals have cropped up in its work. 
The best thought on municipal govern- 
ment of the day unites in demanding 
the greatest possible concentration of au- 
thority and responsibility. The same 
arguments which are urged in favor of 
electing the members of the Board of 
Education might as well and as appro- 
priately be advanced in favor of the 
election of the Comptroller, the Com- 
missioner of Public Works, the Chief of 
Police, the Fire Marshal, in fact of 
every head of a municipal department. 
Advanced thought favors increasing 
rather than diminishing the power and 
responsibility of the Mayor. When the 
citizens have reconsidered this question 
and have given it the benefit of a sober 
second thought they will hesitate before 
they take a backward step. It has been 
my aim and purpose in the years I have 
served as Mayor to remove the schools 
as far as may be possible from the 
sphere of politics and political influence. 
Merit today controls in the public schools 
and individual pull has lost its malign 



power. The scheme recently voted upon ! 
would upset all the good work of seven | 
long years and place the schools abso- ^ 
lutely at the mercy of political rings and i 
spoils dictation. { 

A Mayor's message would be incom- ! 
plete were no reference to be made in it I 
to the financial distress of the city gov- 
ernment. Year after year I have discussed 
the subject in all its bearings; indeed, 
the full gamut has been run in pointing 
out the causes of municipal poverty and 
the apparent impossibility of obtaining 
relief. The present year, as members of 
your Honorable Body are well aware, 
has been no exception to the rule, which 
seems to be that this great city of two 
million souls is indefinitely doomed to 
struggle along with a revenue inade- 
quate for its barest needs. Where, Avhen, 
and how relief is to come has not yet 
been made evident. Citizens are indulg- 
ing in roseate dreams of the benefits to 
be obtained from the proposed constitu- 
tional amendment by which Chicago is 
to be given a new charter. To these citi- 
zens I would commend a careful leading 
of the amendment itself. Its adoption 
will be of assistance to the city. It must 
not be thought, however, that with its 
adoption all the ills from which Chi- 
cago has suffered in the past and is 
suffering today will be cured. 

CORPORATIO.N COUNSEL'S OFFICE. 

The Corporation Counsel's oflice has 
during the past year been engaged in the 
most important legal controversies that 
have ever engaged the attention of that 
department. The disputes between the 
city and the traction companies pend- 
ing for years, so far as the West and 
North Side companies are concerned, 
have been submitted to the United States 
Court for consideration upon oral argu- 
ments and written briefs. The bone of 
contention always has been the validit}' 
and extent of the so-called "ninety-nine 
year act." The proceedings leading up 
to the appointment of the receivers for 
the Chicago Union Traction Company 



April 11,

1904 



and the underlying companies, and the 
legal contest which has been a result 
thereof are matters on which the public 
must be so well informed that it is 
unnecessary for me here' to refer to 
them. There can be no doubt that the 
city has presented its contentions forci- 
bly and ably, and that nothing has been 
left undone by the Law Department to 
fully present every argument that could 
be presented in behalf of the city. 

The Supreme Court of Illinois held in 
the case entitled, City of Chicago, for 
Use of Schools, vs. City of Chicago, that 
all school lands commonly known as 
"Section 16 lands" (being lands acquired 
by grant from the general government), 
and all lands derived by purchase with 
the proceeds of sales of such lands, were 
subject to special assessmeht, and as a 
result thereof the Board of Education 
will be compelled to pay all special as- 
sessments heretofore levied against its 
property which it has heretofore refused 
to pay, and those bonds on which -the 
city has defaulted, owing to the present 
refusal to pay, will be paid. 

In the case of City vs. Chicago Gen- 
eral Railway Company, the depart- 
ment ousted the railway company 
from certain streets for failure to main- 
tain its right of way in good condition 
and repair, and in the case against the 
Chicago Terminal Railway Company, 
and the Suburban Railway Company, 
ousted the railway company from* the 
street for failure to operate. 

The judgment for $555,560.25 entered 
August 29, 1899, by the Circuit Court 
of Cook County, in favor of the firm of 
Weir, McKechney & Co. for money al- 
leged to have been due on account of 
work performed by said firm in the con- 
struction of Section .3 of the Northwest 
Land Tunnel, was reversed by the Su- 
preme Court. 

The Supreme Court of Illinois, in de- 
ciding the Stone case, which was an 
appeal from a decree of the Circuit 
Court, denying an injunction to restrain 
the city from issuing bonds to the 



amount of four million dollars for the 
purpose of paying judgments against 
the city, passed upon the question of the 
present indebtedness of the city, and as 
a result thereof the city will be enabled 
to issue bonds to a comparatively con- 
siderable amount for the purpose of 
making several needed improvements. 

October 15, 1900, the City Council, by 
ordinance, fixed the price of gas to be 
charged in the city at the rate of not 
to exceed seventy-five cents per thou- 
sand feet. The People's Gas Light and 
Coke Company contested the validity of 
the ordinance in the United States 
Courts, claiming that under its special 
amended charter, passed by the Legis- 
lature in 1865, it had a contract where- 
by the city could not reduce the price 
below the sum of three dollars per thou- 
sand feet, and that by virtue of its hav- 
ing taken advantage of the Gas Consoli- 
dation Act of 1897, by merging with 
many other companies, it had still a con- 
tract whereby the city was prohibited 
from reducing the price of gas below the 
sum of one dollar per thousand feet, and 
that it was charging one dollar, and that 
the passage of the ordinance constituted 
an impairment of the contract. The Cir- 
cuit Court decided adversely to the Ga& 
Company's contention, and the Supreme 
Court of the United States has just sus- 
tained the lower court. The only ob- 
stacle now in the way of cheaper gas to 
the citizens of Chicago is the decision 
of the United States Circuit Court in 
the Mills case, that the city has no 
power to regulate the price of gas. The 
Law Department is now preparing this 
case for appeal to the Supreme Court of 
the United States and is confident of a 
favorable decision. In tTie event, how- 
ever, of an adverse decision, the admin- 
istration will seek a grant of power to 
regulate the price of gas from the Legis- 
lature. 

If space allowed, it would be my pleas- 
ure to refer to other very important liti- 
gation which has resulted successfully. 
The marked success of the Law Depart- 



April 11, 



18 



1904 



ment has been due to its devotion and 
fidelity to the interests of the city, and 
due credit should be given accordingly. 

In the Special Assessment Law De- 
partnient thirty-six (36) condemnation 
cases have been successfully tried, and 
eight hundred and fifty (850) special 
assessment proceedings for street im- 
provement have been confirmed. This in- 
cludes the Jackson Park avenue sewer 
system, at an estimated cost of $887,000. 
This department has caused to be put in 
collection during the year over $100,000 
of old assessments, a large amount of 
which should have been in collection 
years ago. When collected, practically 
all local improvement bonds now out- 
standing can be met. 

The present vigorous course in substi- 
tuting new sidewalks for old plank side- 
walks, where these are defective, should 
be continued, as the direct cause of a 
majority of the present pending injury 
cases against the city are due to the de- 
fective condition of plank walks. 

The warrants brought down to date 
by Haskins & Sells should be investi- 
gated for the purpose of ascertaining 
their accuracy, with a view to determin- 
ing whether any monej^s are due on 
them or not. 

COMPTROLLER'S OFFICE. 

The administration of the city's 
finances during the year 1903 was em- 
barrassed by the proverbial insufficiency 
of revenue. While the public needs of 
the city corporate are constantly in- 
creasing, the revenue from taxation re- 
mains practically the same from jear to 
year. This is illustrated by the fact 
that general taxes levied for corporate 
purposes in 1902 amounted to $5,770,- 
876.97; in 1903, $5,831,097.25, an in- 
crease of $60,220.28, whereas the cor- 
porate expenses for 1903, as compared 
with 1902, show an increase of $554,- 
772.80, and an excess of expenses over 
revenue for 1903 of $895,724.13. 

The necessity for providing funds 
promptly and in sufficient volume to sat- 



isfy all legitimate demands and sustain 
the city's credit has required the most 
constant watchfulness and attention. 
Every safeguard that has been devised 
by the business world for use in commer- 
cial transactions has been installed in 
the various departments in the city in 
order that the revenues may be con- 
served and the utmost economy prac- 
ticed in expenses. Much of this work 
has devolved upon the Audit Bureau of 
the Comptroller's office, whose useful- 
ness is being constantly extended. For 
example, during the past year a Price 
and Material Division has been created, 
wherein prices on every purchase made 
by the city are carefully scrutinized and 
compared. The pay rolls of departments 
are also checked against original time 
books and their accuracy tested by an 
actual count of the employes while at 
work. The results have been gratifying 
not only in their moral effect, but in the 
fact that the economies resulting have 
placed the bureau on a self-supporting 
basis. 

The records of the city's real estate 
have been revised and perfected, and 
careful attention has been given to the 
revenues from that source. 

The most notable achievement in the 
history of special assessments was the 
sucessful culmination during the past 
year of the work of the accountants, 
Haskins & Sells, in adjusting the ac- 
counts and rewriting the records of 
special assessments from the time of 
the great fire of 1871. This work was 
in progress for nearly three years, 
and covered 4,300,000 individual assess- 
ments, aggregating $95,500,000. The 
work contains over 200,000 sheets of 
manuscript and typewritten matter, and 
is an invaluable record to both the tax- 
payers and the city, as it has enabled 
the taxpayer promptly to collect for ex- 
cessive payments without the assistance 
of a tax exj^ert ; it has provided the city 
with «, full knowledge of the special as- 
sessment obligations, and in many cases 
has pointed the means of liquidating 



April 11, 



19 



1904 



them, and has promoted harmony in the 
relations between the citizens and the 
city government. 

x\mong the financial benefits of this 
work are the recovery by the city of 
$550,000 of delinquent taxes, which had 
been lost sight of in past years, and the 
payment of rebates to property owners 
aggregating over $400,000. 

By virtue of the systematic mctltc"' r, 
of accounting for special - assessments 
and the careful administration of the 
special assessment fiinds throughout the 
year, the city was enabled to comply 
with the legal requirements for the pay- 
ment of special assessment bonds, and 
bonds were called for payment at the 
end of the year aggregating $567,500. 
Additional payments have since been 
made as fast as funds have accumulated 
and a large saving of interest charges 
has thus been effected. 

By a system of daily checking and 
constant supervision the Police Courts 
have finally been put upon a paying 
basis, the revenue from this source for 
1903 being $163,680.43, and the expenses 
$117,646.23, leaving a net earning of 
$46,034.20. 

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

Water Supply. 

Stations and amount and capacity of 
*pumping machinery have remained tRe 
same as in 1902. Total amount of water 
pumped during 1903 was 137,515,751,- 
956 gallons, being an increase of 623,- 
468,936 gallons over 1902. On a basis 
of 2,000,000 population, this is 188 gal- 
lons per capita, daily. 

Contracts have been let for three 25,- 
000,000'gallon vertical triple expansion 
engines at Chicago Avenue Station. A 
contract was also awarded for a new 
boiler plant to take the place of the ex- 
isting plant at the Fourteenth Street 
Pumping Station at a cost of $100,000. 

Water Pipe Extension. 
One hundred and twenty-four thou- 
sand and twelve lineal feet of water pipe. 



varying in size from 4 to 36 inches in di- 
ameter, were laid; 332 hydrants and 253 
valves were placed. At the close of 
1903 there were in all a total of 1,940 
miles of water mains, 19,922 hydrants 
and 15,681 valves. 

Bridges and Viaducts. 
During the year 1903 new bascule 
bridges were opened for public use as 
follows: East Division street. Ninety- 
fifth street, Canal street. Main street, 
State street, Ashland avenue (West 
Fork), and Randolph street bridges. 
The first two were built by the City of 
Chicago and the others by the Sanitary 
District of Chicago. Substructures for 
new trunion bascule bridges over the 
North Branch of the river at West Di- 
vision street and North avenue were 
completed, and plans were prepared and 
contracts let for the superstructure of 
the North Western avenue bridge. The 
West Division street bridge will be 
opened to traffic by April 15, and the 
North Western avenue bridge will be 
completed by August 1, 1904. 
Harbors. 
Forty-four permits for dock work 
along the Chicago and Calumet Rivers 
v/ere issued, involving the construction 
of 5,075 feet of new docks, the rebuild- 
ing of 3,721 feet, and the repairing of 
2,161 feet. Sixty-three permits were 
issued for dredging in the Chicago and 
Calumet Rivers, Covering approximately 
1,952,000 cubic yards. The Sanitary Dis- 
trict continued dredging the Chicago 
River, removing about 232,000 cubic 
yards. The United States government 
removed from the Calumet River 1,440,- 
000 cubic yards. 

A new^ engine should be installed at 
Sixty eighth Street Station; another at 
the Springfield Avenue Station; and a 
third at the Central Park Avenue Sta- 
tion. Work should commence at once 
on the proposed new tunnel leading from 
the present Sixty-eighth street crib 
southwesterly to the central portion of 
the southwest district to a new pump- 



April 11,

ing station so that this new station can 
supply the entire district sontli of the 
Sixty-eighth Street Station, thus en- 
abling the Sixty-eighth Street Pumping 
Station to supply Hyde Park and the 
Town of Lake. 

BUREAU OF WATER. 

The work of the Bureau for the year 
1903 has been of the routine nature. 
Results have been quite satisfactory. 
House to house inspections, extending 
over eight of the outlying and sparsely 
settled wards, have resulted in an in- 
crease to the general assessment of about 
$73,000. 

Assessor's Division. 
Contracts were let for laying water 
service pipes in sixty streets. Estimates 
for laying water service pipes prepared 
for the Board of Local Improvements 
cover 112 streets. 

Meter Division. 
Two thousand five hundred and sixty- 
three meters were repaired, being about 
33 per cent, of the total number in serv- 
ice. Collections in this division exceed- 
j ed those of the previous year by $74.- 
214.09. 

Collection Division. 

Quite a reduction of the force was 
made at the commencement of the year, 
making it necessary j:o perform some 
night Avork. The collections pvr^eedecl 
those of the previous year by $416.- 
340.44. 

Legislation should be had so as to 
make effective the application of $200,- 
000 appropriated by the Council for in- 
stallation of meters for the Durnose of 
stopping the enormous waste of water. 

GARBAGE. 

During the year 1903 there were re- 
moved 1,307,550 cubic yards of garbage, 
or 273,926 loads, at a cost of $643,427.30. 
There were 919 garbage complaints, in 
comparison with 1,417 during 1902; 
47,688 loads of snow^ were removed at 
a total cost of $58,079.59. 



Some action should be taken at once 
towards providing a more modern meth- 
od of disposing of the garbage and ref- 
use of this city. 

STREET AND ALLEY CLEANING. 

During the year ' there were cleaned 
15,079% miles of streets and alleys, 
necessitating the removal of 117,223 
loads of street dirt. One million, two 
hundred and forty-five thousand and two 
lineal feet of weeds' were cut. Two hun- 
dred and twenty- four thousand, , eight 
hundred and forty-eight inlets to catch- 
basins were opened and cleaned. The 
total costs of this work was $244,225.57, 
and $37,120.43 of this amount was 
charged to the street car companies for 
cleaning their various rights of way. 

REPAIRING IMPROVED STREETS 
AND ALLEYS. 

During the year the following work 
Avas done in the repair of streets and al- 
leys : Nine thousand, three hundred and 
thirty-three and one-half square yards of 
new cedar blocks were laid, 8,498 square 
yards of old cedar blocks were relaid, 
7,285 square yards of granite bloclfs 
were relaid, 1,86114 square yards of 
macadam laid, 8961/0 square yards of 
brick laid, and 488 square yards of 
asphalt. « 

UNIMPROVED STREET AND ALLEY 
CLEANING. 

The following work was done on un- 
improved streets and alleys: 1.191,529 
lineal feet of streets graded, 660.260 
lineal feet of ditches opened and 
cleaned, 385 new and repaired aprons, 
1,314 new and repaired crossings, 1,601 
new and repaired culverts, 40 new and 
repaired box drains. 

SIDEWALK REPAIRS. 

The following work was done on side- 
walks: 1.906 new and repaired intersec- 
tions, 16.776 general repairs were made. 

SMALL PARKS. 

Tliirty-two small parks were main- 



April 11, 



21 



1904 



tained and kept in good condition by this 
department at a cost of $19,087.24. The 
appropriation for the year was $21,000. 
In improving and beautifying the parks 
1,125 cubic yards of black soil were 
used. Seven thousand, eight hundred 
plants and 135 trees were planted. Spe- 
cial attention was given to the follow- 
ing parks : Congress, Normal, Fernwood, 
Jefferson, Irving, Bernard and East End 
Parks. In the improvement of East End 
Park 20,000 loads of rubbish were re- 
moved. 

The Police Department should give 
special attention to the enforcement of 
the Clean Street Ordinance. The Health 
Department should request property 
owners and residents to see that all 
cleaning of yards, etc., be done about the 
15th of April instead of the 1st of May. 
The abolition of plank sidewalks should 
be advocated. Steps should be taken to 
have the money received as compensation 
for sidewalk space, bay window space, 
and coal vault space, available for use 
in cleaning and repairing streets, as the. 
sum appropriated by the Council is not 
sufficient. 

BUREAU OF SEWERS. 

Amount of sewage pumped, 

in gallons 10,099,000,000 

Mileage of sewers cleaned 

during year 369.4 

Catch basins cleaned 14,683 

Total cost of cleaning 

sewers and catch basins. $118,303.41 

House drains put in 8,651 

Total expenditures for 

maintenance $286,815.40 

Owing to the inadequate appropria- 
tion we have not given the sewers a gen- 
eral cleaning for several years, confining 
ourselves to attending to complaints. We 
should have enough money to go over 
the entire system at least once a year. 
The growing tendency to clean asphalt 
and brick paved streets by flushing into 
the catchbasins requires the frequent 
cleaning of the basins, and unless an in- 
creased appropriation is proveded this 



will be impossible. On newly paved 
streets the Board of Local Improvements 
should provide as many inlets as possible 
to prevent water standing in the gut- 
ters. Numerous complaints reach this 
office of water standing on vacant prop- 
erty fronting on streets which have 
sewers., Some way should be found to 
com,pel owners to drain their property 
of this water, which becomes stagnant 
and causes sickness. Installation of a 
sewer system in each of the following 
districts is necessary: In the extreme 
southern portion of the city, and. in the 
territory lying west of Western avenue 
and south of Thirty-ninth street, as 
these districts are completely inundated 
every spring. 

INTERCEPTING SEWERS. 
The 20-foot conduit in Thirty-ninth 
street (Sections C and L) has been com- 
pleted and cleaned. The work on the 
grounds and walls for the pumping 
station at Thirty-ninth street and Lake 
Michigan was much delayed by the con-, 
stant northerly winds. The protection 
pier was completed, as well as the very 
large coffer-dam in which the water 
channels and foundations of the pump- 
ing station are now building; nearly 
one-third of the foundation was finished 
in 1903. Work on the pumping ma- 
chinery and engines for the Thirty-ninth 
Street Pumping Station is progressing 
steadily. The southern intercepting 
sew^er is completed to Seventy-first 
street. A temporary pumping plant on 
the Illinois Central right of way is be- 
ing installed for the purpose of divert- 
ing the sewage from the lake on the 
South Side. The work on Stony Island 
avenue has been carried on by day labor 
as heretofore, with good results. Fol- 
lowing is a summary of sewers and ap- 
purtenances built by day labor during 
1903: 

622 feet 15i/4-foot sewer, Section G3. 
2,437 feet 13%-foot sewer. Section G3. 
4,656 feet 13i4-foot sewer. Sections H 
and H2. 

392 feet 12i^-foot sewer. Section H2. 



April 11,

12 manholes. 

5 catch basins. 

1,240 feet li/4-foot sewer. 

The city has maintained during 1903 
the temporary pumping station on Law- 
rence avenue at Lake Michigan to relieve 
the conduit of such sewage and storm 
water as flows into it; likewise the tem- 
porary plants on Thirty-ninth street at 
Halsted street. Dearborn street and Lake 
Michigan. These three plants last men- 
tioned will be dispensed with as soon as 
the temporary plant connecting the 
South Side system with the Thirty-ninth 
street conduit is completed. 

Work to Be Done in 1904. 

Finish Section H2 to Seventy-third 
street, a 12y2-foot sewer 1,700 feet long; 
also 1,200 feet of 4-foot sewer in 63d 
street, from Stony Island avenue to pres- 
ent Woodlawn Pumping Station ; also 
2,900 feet of 61/. -foot sewer from Thirty- 
fifth street to Thirty-ninth street; also 
j-eversing all sewers east of Cornell and 
Stony Island avenues. This will finish 
the intercepting sewer work on the South 
Side, so that the entire South Side sys- 
tem will be ready for operation as soon 
as the pumping station and machinery 
at the foot of Thirty-ninth street is com- 
pleted. 

On the North Side there will have to 
be built 8,100 feef of 16-foot diameter 
conduit in Lawrence avenue, together 
with needed pumping station, intake at 
lake and outfall to river. This work, 
however, cannot proceed pending the de- 
cision by the Supreme Court of the Han- 
reddy case. The crib for the Fullerton 
avenue conduit will be repaired and par- 
tially reconstructed. 

BUREAU OF MAPS. 

During the year this bureau prepared 
1,977 plats, of which 1,523, covering an 
area of 1,458.67 miles, were for the 
Board of Local Improvements. Plats 
showing all bay windows and other en- 
croachments on city property were pre- 
pared, also plats for all sidewalks in the 
downtown district showing space occu- 
pied by the adjacent property owners. 



Seventeen thousand, nine hundred and 
seventy-seven people required the per- 
sonal attention of an employe during the 
year. Approximately 56,000 people made 
use of the information obtained in this 
bureau. Two hundred and twenty-two 
petitiojis, including street railway, elec- 
tric light, heating, etc., saloon license 
protests and house-moving petitions 
were verified and reported on. 

All atlases in this bureau should be 
renewed as soon as possible. 

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 

I have kept in closer touch with the 
Health Department than usual during 
the year, and as a result I wish to bring 
somewhat fully to the attention of the 
Council the present status of this 
branch of my administration, the re- 
sults of its work and its effect upon the 
reputation of the city. 

It must be a source of gratification 
to learn that, while Chicago spends the 
least amount per capita for health pur- 
poses, it has the lowest death rate of any 
of the principal cities of the country. 
These two assertions are based on 
official reports of the United States Cen- 
sus Office and the United States Depart- 
ment of Labor. 

In the census year 1900 there were, ac- 
cording to these authorities, eleven so- 
called "principal cities,,' — that is, those 
having populations of more than 300,000 
each. In order of lowest death rate these 
are as follows: 

Death Per capita 

rate for health 

per 1.000. purposes. 

Chicago 10.2 $0.10 

Cleveland 17.1 .16 

St. Louis 17.9 .22 

Buffalo 18.4 .14 

Cincinnati 19.1 .12 

Pittsburg 20.1 .25 

San Francisco 20.5 .64 

Baltimore 21.0 .15 

Philadelphia 21.2 .23 

Boston 23.4 .30 

New York 25.4 .30 



April ,11, 



23 



1904 



These figures shoAV Chicago's death 
rate to be 20 per cent lower than the 
average of the other ten cities, 23 per 
cent lower than Baltimore's, 24 per cent 
lower than Philadelphia's, 32 per cent 
lower than Boston's and 36 per cent 
lower than New York's. They show its 
per capita expenditure for health pur- 
poses to be 58 per cent lower than the 
average, and 66.6 per cent lower than 
that of Boston and New York. 

In achieving these results the follow- 
ing features of Health Departnlent work 
are regarded as important factors: 

1. Supervision and inspection of the 
milk supply, which has resulted in giv- 
ing Chicago the best milk and cream of 
any large city in the country— the im- 
provement in its quality and consequent 
effects on child life are shown in the 
statement that in 1896 more than one- 
third (37 per cent.) of the samples ex- 
amined 'in the Municipal Laboratory 
were found to be below grade, and the 
deaths of children under 5 years of age 
were 66.6 per 10,000 of total population. 
In 1903 only 6.4 per cent, were found 
below grade, and the children's deaths 
were 44.7 per 10,000 — an improvement 
of 83 per cent, in milk quality and a 
decrease of 33 per cent, in child mor- 
tality. 

I would call the attention of the Coun- 
cil to the fact that the present force 
available for supervision of the milk 
supply — which includes the collection of 
samples throughout the entire city, in- 
spection of dairies, stores where milk is 
sold, wagons, utensils, etc. — consists of 
six milk inspectors, one dairy inspector 
and one milk tester. The total cost of 
this service for the year 1903, including 
salaries, horse feed, shoeing, repairing 
of harness and vehicles, purchases of ap- 
pliances, bottles, chemicals, apparatus, 
etc., Avas $8,915.00. The license fees 
paid into the City Treasury amounted 
to $45,647.00. Add to this the sum of 
$7,217.00 collected in fines from violators 
of the Milk Ordinance, and the total re- 
ceipts by the City through the work of 



the Milk Division amount to $52,864.00, 
or $43,949.00 more than its total cost. 
I beg to suggest to your Honorable Body 
that a large part, if not every dollar, hi 
this excess of receipts over expenditures 
would be profitably employed in the ex- 
tension of the services of the Milk Di- 
vision to the work of careful inspection 
and supervision of Chicago's milk supply 
at the points of production. 

2. The efforts of the Department in 
the field of preventive medicine, especial- 
ly with reference to consumption, diph- 
theria, influenza, pneumonia, scarlet 
fever, smallpox and typhoid fever — In 
1893 the consumption death rate was 
18.10 per 10,000 of population. A cam- 
paign of education in the cause and re- 
striction of the disease was then begun 
and has been carried on since. Last year 
the death rate was 14.04— a decrease of 
more than one-fifth (22.4 per cent). 

In 1894 the city paid the penalty of 
previous years of neglected vaccination 
through an epidemic of smallpox, which 
cost 1,190 lives and an enormous loss 
in money. The practice of vaccination 
has been completely modernized and per- 
sistently pushed. An up-to-date Isola- 
tion Hospital has replaced the old "pest- 
house," and at the close of last year 
there had been but sixty-one deaths from 
smallpox since 1895. 

_ In October, 1895, the Department pro- 
moted the antitoxin treatment of diph- 
theria and assumed its treatment among 
the poor and destiute. In that year the 
deaths from this disease amounted to 
11.66 per 10,000 of population. Last 
year there were only 3.44 per 10,000— a 
decrease of 70 per cent. 

During the three years previous to 
the first .appointment of the present 
Commissioner there Avere 4,494 deaths 
from typhoid fever— an average annual 
rate of 12.86 per 10,000 of population. 
During the last three years, 1901-1903, 
there were only 1,898 such deaths— an 
average annual rate of 3.46 per 10.000 
and a decrease of nearly three-fourths 



April 11, 



24 



1904 



(73.1 per cent) in the typhoid mortality. 
The decrease is due, in large measure, 
to the information given to the public 
as to the sanitary quality of the water 
supply, based upon the daily chemical 
examinations. 

3. Chicago's system of free public 
baths, open throughout the year, is also 
a factor of public health. More than 
half a million men, women and children 
were, during the past year, afforded bath- 
ing facilities without charge. The Carter 
H. Harrison bath, opened in January, 
1894, was the first absolutely free muni- 
cipal bath established in the world. 

Among other features of the ten years' 
work of the Department may be men- 
tioned the development of a first-class 
practical working laboratory of chemis- 
try, bacteriology, pathology and diag- 
nosis, whose scope and volume of work 
may be inferred from the fact that con- 
siderably more than 100,000 separate 
determinations and manipulations are 
made aimually in the regular branches, 
exclusive of special examinations and 
analyses ; 

The original devising and subsequent 
perfecting of a system of disinfection, 
already widely copied elsewhere; 

The inauguration of medical school in- 
spection in 189(5; the second city in the 
country to make the attempt; 

The vast improvement in the regis- 
tration of vital statistics and the cer- 
tification of causes of death; 

The supervision of contagious disease 
during life, and the conduct of funerals 
and care of premises after death; 

And, above all, the persistent education 
of the public by circulars, leaflets, bul- 
letins, lectures and addresses, whose les- 
sons and precepts are disseminated and 
emphasized by various civic and philan- 
thropic organizations and still more 
widely by the public press. 

The Commissioner claims that the Chi- 
cago, public is thus made more intelli- 
gent on sanitary matters than is any 
other community and largely to this fact 



he ascribes the constantly increasing 
health fulness, the reducing death rates 
and the lengthening of human life in 
Chicago— facts shown by the Depart- 
ment's figures and corroborated by the 
official statistics of the United States 
authorities. 

BOARD OF LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS. 

During the past year 1,499,041 square 
yards, or 82.5 miles, of paving were con- 
structed of different material at a cost 

of $3,817,400, as follows: 

Miles. 

Asphalt 48.88 

Brick 7,06 

Cedar 1,92 

Creosoted block . . 03 

Granite \ . . 3.55 

Macadam 20.15 

Novaculite 28 

Rock asphalt 18 

There are now confirmed by the 
County Court and ready for advertising 
paving assessments on 126 streets, 
which, with the number of streets that 
will yet be confirmed so that the work 
can be done this year, will insure fully 
as many miles of street paving for the 
year 1904 as was laid in 1903. 

Sewers were constructed in different 
streets amounting to $343,750, and as- 
sessments for drains, water service pipes 
and watei- mains were confirmed and 
improvements constructed amounting to 
$150,000. Plans have been prepared and 
an estimate made and the roll is now 
being spread for a system of sewers to 
be known as the ""Ninety-fifth Sti'eet 
System," Avhich is designed to drain 5,500 
acres lying south of Eighty-seventh 
street, the estimated cost of which is 
$745,000. 

In 1903 357 miles of sidewalks were 
constructed at a total cost of $1,163,783, 
as follows: Cement, 135 miles; cinder, 
172 miles; plank, 50 miles, this being 
far in excess of sidewalk work ever here- 
tofore done by the department. Assess- 
ments have been confirmed and are now 
under contract for the construction of 



April 11, 



25 



plank walks upon 52 streets, covering 
13 miles ; cement walks upon 107 streets, 
covering- 57 1/2 miles; cinder walks upon 
224 streets, covering 56 miles. In addi- 
tion to these streets, already under con- 
tract for sidewalks, assessments have 
been confirmed and are ready for adver- 
tising as follows: Plank sidewalks, 8 
streets, 2 miles; cement sidewalks, 141 
streets, 37% miles; cinder sidewalks, 52 
streets, 26 miles. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 
The increase of the salaries of patrol- 
men from $1,000 to $1,100 per year has 
been much appreciated by the rank and 
file of the service. 

As a whole the department is growing 
old, and while many patrolmen by rea- 
son of long service and the ills incident 
to police duties are not as active and 
efficient on post as desired, they would 
be fairly satisfactory in the performance 
of certain lines of duty such as street 
crossings, public playgrounds, public 
baths, schools in congested neighborhoods 
and wherever men are actually necessary 
if younger men were available for active 
police work. If this city is to be ade- 
quately policed, an increase of at least 
1,000 patrolmen is a crying necessity. 

The total number of arrests during 
the year, was 77,763, an increase of 7,449 
over 1902. These figures do not include 
223 arrests made on capias. There were 
40,186 arrests for disorderly conduct, an 
increase of 5,781 over last year. About 
16 per cent of the arrests of the year 
were felonies, 11 per cent for state mis- 
demeanors, and 73 per cent for viola- 
tions of city ordinances; 20,412 persons 
were fined in police courts, the amount 
of fines aggregating $330,026; 377 per- 
sons M^ere sent to penitentiaries or re- 
formatories and' 764 persons to the 
County Jail or House of Correction by 
the Criminal Courts through the activity 
of this department. Fifty-three fugitives 
were traced to and arrested in other 
cities and returned to Chicago for trial, 
and 209 fugitives were arrested in Chi- 



1904 

cago and turned over to officers from 
other cities. 

The area of the city is 109.0 square 
miles. Number of police officers per 
square mile, 14.5. Average number of 
arrests to each officer, 28.12. 

The number of insane persons handled 
during the year shows a decrease of 
about 8 per cent as compared with 1902. 
During the year the patrol wagon re- 
sponded to 69,918 call§ and traveled 235,- 
979 miles. Eight ambulances are in 
service. 

During the year there has been an in- 
crease in the number of arrests for both 
serious and minor offenses, which may 
be attributed to the increased vigilance 
and energy of both rank and file in the 
service. 

Estimated value of property reported 
stolen, $434,881.75. Value of stolen prop- 
erty recovered by the police, $392,181.63. 
Total expenditures for the department in 
1903, $3,569,477.77. 

Thirty-two deaths occurred in the 
active service of the department: Three 
from gun shot wounds and twenty-nine 
from other causes while in the discharge 
of duty. Two hundred and twenty-eight , 
officers were injured during the year 
while in the discharge of their duty. 
HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 
The House -of Correction in 1903 cared 
for a total of 10,368 persons, with an 
average daily population of 1,401. It 
earned $95,987, and showed an average 
per capita expenditure of 33 cents per 
day. 

Quarrying of stone was commenced 
during the year and ^lans for enlarging 
the stone crushing plant completed and 
the product of the quarry is, being used 
for street purposes and other municipal 
needs. Five million brick were made at 
the institution and turned into the vari- 
ous departments of the city during the 
year. The policy of work for every in- 
mate has been rigidly adhered to, and in 
a short time they will all be employed on 
AA^ork for city account only, lessening the

objection to the competition of prison 
labor, furnishing the city required arti- 
cles at a minimum price, and making 
the institutions more self-sustaining. 

The new city dog pound was built on 
the institution grounds during the year 
largely by inmates of the instituion and 
is credited with being the best appointed 
dog pound in the country. 

Three and one -half acres of river slips 
have been filled in during the past year, 
that additional ground added to the 
acreage of the institution, it now being 
converted to farm purposes. 

The John Worthy School department, 
with an average population of 348, has 
added new features of educational in- 
terest during the year, and its effective 
work in reclaiming many a wayward boy 
with its salutary influence upon- hun- 
dreds of others is shown in the reports. 
The institution's work was further en- 
larged during the year by its adoption of 
the House of Good Shepherd and the 
Erring Women's Refuge for reform as 
houses of shelter and provisions made 
for the maintenance of delinquent young 
girls in these two institutions, which 
action legalizes commitments and places 
them under the jurisdiction of the House 
of Correction. 

The efficient and high plane upon 
which the institution is conducted, its 
constantly declining percentage of re- 
commitments and the value and influence 
of the institution's Avork upon thousands 
of unfortunates annually committed 
there, are personally known to hundreds 
of our best citizens who interest them- 
selves in philanthropic matters. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Fire Department during the past 
year responded to 8,251 alarms, an in- 
crease of 1,05& over the preceding year. 
The value of property involved was 
$111,743,441. The loss for the year was 
$3,062,922, or $1,050,011 less than in the 
year 1902 period. The total insurance 
involved was $68,748,203. Five new en- 



gine houses were built during the year 
at a cost of $54,000. Three new steam 
fire engines, of the latest improved type, 
were purchased at a cost of $14,100. 
Three new aerial hook and ladder trucks 
were purchased at a cost of $12,600. 
These trucks are valuable acquisitions 
to the department and cail be readily 
handled by two men, requiring but fifteen 
seconds to be raised and put into service, 
whereas the old-style trucks required 
five minutes' time and the services of 
six or eight men. Twenty-three thousand 
feet of hose was purchased at a cost of 
$16,000, and 43 horses were bought at 
a cost of $8,110. The cost of repairs 
to apparatus for the year amounted to 
$34,101.45. Repairs to buildings cost 
$10,000. The improvements as noted 
above were very essential and will add 
greatly to the efficiency of the depart- 
ment. 

I would suggest the early installation 
of the high-pressure system in the con- 
gested district. I would also recommend 
the hign-pressure system for the Stock 
Yards district, or that the engine com- 
panies now located there be duplicated. 
It is also very essential that companies 
be equipped and installed as follows: 

Nine engine and four truck companies 
west of Halsted street, between the city 
limits north and south. Five engine and 
three truck companies in the north di- 
vision of the city, north of Fullerton 
avenue. Six engine and four truck com- 
panies south of Thirty- ninth street and 
east of Halsted street. 

I Avould again urge the speedy instal- 
lation of the pipe line system for the 
fire boats as recommended in my previ- 
ous reports, the same to be a part of the 
high-pressure system contemplated.

DEPARTMENT OF SUPPLIES. 

The report of the Business Agent 
shows that there were issued during the 
year 1903 18,313 orders for materials, 
supplies and repair Avork, involving an 
expenditure of $653,195.32. A compari- 
son with business of the previous year 
shows an increase of 401 in the number 
of orders issued, and a decrease of $4,- 
715.75 in the total sum expended through 
the department. The average expend- 
iture involved in the year's transactions - 
was $30.21, as compared with $36.72 for 
the year 1902, showing an average de- 
crease of $6.51. The year's business as 
thus summarized includes purchases of 
merchandise for the warehouse main- 
tained by the department, as well as of 
stationery and office supplies carried in 
stock in the City Hall. The warehouse 
stock includes materials and supplies 
which are in regular and constant use 
and which are delivered upon requisi- 
tion in small lots to the several depart- 
ments. There were issued during the 
year 1,601 orders on the warehouse, 
mostly including lists of small items and 
representing a cost of $19,595.86. 

The cost of maintaining the Department 
of Supplies during the year 1903, includ- 
ing salaries, vent of warehouse, equip- 
ment and all other expenses, was $15 



April 11, . 

427.36. During the same period the de- 
partment received from the sale of 
scrap iron, old machinery and various 
waste materials the sum of $6,383.62. 

. It is the purpose of the Department 
of Supplies to guard the city's small dis- 
, bursements and get full values for all 
sums expended. To this end the work 
of the department is conducted on strict 
business principles. Competition is free, 
and the records of all transactions are 
complete. 

TRACK ELEVATION. 

Ordinances have been passed for the 
elevation of the Chicago Junction Rail- 
way and the tracks of the Chicago and 
Northwestern Railway, eliminating 
jointly forty-two grade crossings and 
elevating six miles of tracks, at an esti- 
mated joint cost of $2,400,000. The vari- 
ous railroads entering Chicago have ele- 
vated seven miles of main tracks and 
about sixty-two miles of other tracks, 
and liave eliminated forty -one grade 
crossings by the construction of subways 
at an estimated cost of $3,690,000. 

The work to be done by the railway 
and railroad companies under ordinances 
that have been passed and accepted and 
whicli is to be fully and finally completed 
on or before the 31st day of December, 
1900, is as follows: Total number of 
miles of m.ain tracks to be elevated, 
57.43; total number of miles of other 
tracks to be elevated, 279.76; total num- 
ber of subways yet to be constructed, 
186; total estimated cost of work yet 
to be completed, $18,095,000. 

As all of this work has to be completed 
within the next three years it will re- 



28 



1904 

quire that the railroad companies shall 
construct and fully complete at least a 
little over $6,000,000 of work each year 
at their own expense. 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT. 

The inspection of new buildings has 
been more thorough and frequent than in 
former years, because of the instituion 
of a new system of records. All halls, 
churches, hospitals and hotels have been 
inspected and made to comply with the 
requirements of the ordinance. 

The fire escape ordinance has been 
vigorously enforced and the erection of 
fire escapes ordered on 1,300 buildings. 
The enclosure of elevator shafts with 
fireproof material has been stringently 
enforced. A large number of buildings 
erected in previous years were found to 
be poorly equipped with protection 
against fire, and in these a strict compli- 
ance has been required with the present 
ordinance. 

The department is limited as regards 
employes and should be improved in that 
respect. Although building was not as 
extensive as in the preceding year, the 
department turned over to the general 
fund, after paying all expenses, $9,428.95. 

CITY COLLECTOR'S OFFICE. 

The large increase as shown by the 
resume of the work of this office for the 
fiscal year is evidence of the persistent 
and earnest work of the department in 
the collection of all license, special as- 
sessment and warrant for collection mat- 
ters assigned to this office for collection.

Total 

Increase over 1902. 



The most noticeable gain for 1903 was 
effected in the collection of special as- 
sessments; $1,269,303.31 was collected in 
excess of the amount returned to the 
City Treasurer during 1903. A net' gain 
of $12,824.98 is shown in the collection 
of licenses and permits, as well as a 
substantial increase in the collection of 
insurance tax. Special efforts were made 
in forcing prompt payment of saloon 
licenses of which there were issued dur- 
ing 1903 7,055. 

The innovation in the collection of 
warrants issued for services rendered in 
making boiler, elevator and electrical 
inspections, including all other charges 
for services and material, damages to 
bridges, etc., charged by the municipal- 
ity has wrought most gratifying results. 
Thirteen thousand eight hundred and 
eighty-seven accounts were charged 
during 1903, of which 13,388 were col- 
lected. Of this number individual re- 
turns were made by the collectors of this 
department on 5,108 accounts involving 
$183,316.10 — a decrease of 40 per cent in 
the number of delinquents as compared 
with accounts outstanding during 1902. 
The total amount collected on these war- 
rants during 1903 was $543,496.12.

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICITY. 

Twenty-four additional fire alarm 
boxes, sixteen additional police boxes, 
5,000 feet of underground cable, and 
thirteen miles of aerial wire have been 
added. Four hundred and three addi- 
tional lamps have been placed in serv- 
ice, and forty-one lamjDs have been discon- 
tinued, increasing the total number of 
lamps by 362 for the year, and making 
the total number of lamps in service 
December 31, 1903, 5,003. In addition to 
lamps placed in service during the year, 
five miles of underground cable, thirty- 
five miles of aerial wire, five 160-light 
and one 150-light generators have been 
added. One and a half miles of under- 
ground cable, containing about fifteen 
miles of wire, and 210 miles of aerial 
wire have been placed in service to re- 
new defective cables and old aerial iron 
wire, and the instruments connected with 
the lines renewed have been put in good 
condition in the Fire Alarm and Police 
Telegraph and Telephone service. 

The total number of fire alarms re- 
ceived and transmitted during the year 
Avas 8,051, being 1,062 more than in 
1902. 

This bureau shows a saving of about 
$50,000 over 1902, on account of the 



substitution of burners consuming three 
cubic feet of gas per hour instead of 
three and a half and four feet, and a 
saving of $5 000 in the maintenance of 
the lamps over 1902 on account of the 
lower rate on contracts for the care and 
repair of the mantle lamps. Two hun- 
dred 24-candle-power mantle lamps 
have been added and the same number 
of 60-candle-power mantle lamps re- 
moved. All of the gasoline lamps are 
now 60-candle power. One hundred and 
fifty-two have been added during the 
year, and $3,500 saved over 1902, on ac- 
count of the lower rate obtained. 

About 1,200 new automobile licenses 
have been issued during the current year 
and 700 renewals, the revenue collected 
therefrom being $4,263. Of this amount, 
$1,200 has been spent for badges", certi- 
ficates, postage stamps and stationery, 
leaving over $3,000 net profit to the 
city; all of which is exclusive of the 
revenues collected for electric and gas 
inspections. 

The most important improvement 
needed at present is better lighted 
streets in the outlying districts. Chi- 
cago now stands at the nead of all cities 
in the world in its municipal lighting, 
and such money as may be available 
should be used to extend the system. 

The proper improvement of streets 
means the removal of all poles and over- 
head wires at the time permanent paving 
is put in place. The city occupies many 
pole lines jointly with private companies 
and finds in some instances that lack" of 
money to remove its own wires blocks 
the desired improvement. This work 
should be proceeded with upon every 
street that is repaved, and special effort 
should be made to secure the necessary 
money to enable the city to care for its 
part of such improvements. 

For three years past an effort has been 
made to secure the necessary money to 
permit the placing of proper signs at 
street intersections, but the effort has 
been unsuccessful. Like many other de- 
tails that cost money, this important one 



April 11,

has been put a«ide because it was not 
absolutely necessary, yet there are many 
complaints and frequent criticisms upon 
the lack of sign's. No city can be great 
unless it looks after the little details. 

MUNICIPAL LIBRARY AND BUREAU 
OF STATISTICS. 

During the year 1903, 1,424 bound and 
imbound volumes were received, 156 let-

city departments, and 670 letters ad- 
dressed to it directly. The mailing list 
now contains 830 names and is steadily 
increasing.

Under the present system, pay checks 
of city laborers are cashed at places 
convenient to the nien, saving trouble 
and expense ior the men and saving in 
time. In handling the pay checks for the 
Board of Education, a system has been 
inaugurated which saves about two 
months' time. 

In special assessment collections a

system has been inaugurated which 
saves interest to the city and enables the 
contractors to receive money due them 
much sooner than in former years. 

A system ha^ also been inaugurated 
whereby city employes may receive ad- 
vances during the month, if occasion war- 
rants, of a portion of their earned sal- 
aries > thus obviating the necessity of 
their falling into the hands of "Loan 
Sharks," who caused untold annoyance 
in stopping city employes' salaries in 
former years.

SMALL PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS. 

The statutory Park Boards have con- 
tinued their policy of active co-operation 
with the Special Park Commission, ap- 
pointed by me, and the latter body has 
made gratifying progress in the estab- 
lishment of Municipal Playgrounds. At 
the last session of the General Assembly 
the Special Commission assisted in the 
passage of legislation, which provides 
for the South Park District additional 
safeguards for the small park and play- 
ground funds, a half mill tax for their 
maintenance and the acquisition of 
others with any surplus; also author- 
ity to issue $3,000,000 additional bonds 
for the acquisition of additional parks 
unlimited in krea and the improvement 
of Grant Park; also a half mill tax for 
the maintenance of such parks; for the 



Lincoln Park district authority to issue 
$1,000,000 of bonds for the addition of 
215 acres to Lincoln Park. 

Of the park and playground sites rec- 
ommended by the Special Commission 
the South Park Commissioners selected 
five either without change or by adding 
to the area and selected five other sites 
close to those recommended. Altogether 
fourteen large and small park sites have 
been bought or will be in a short time 
on the South Side, adding 647 acres to 
the park area. A majority of these 
sites are in densely populated districts. 
The beneficent work started by your 
Honorable Body more than four years 
ago in the organization of the Special 
Commission will bear fruit this year in 
the opening of the first small park and 
playground. Before this Commission 
was organized none of the Park Boards 
had made a move towards park exten- 
sion. Authority has been obtained now 
to expend $6,500,000 by bond issues for 
this purpose, in addition to special taxes 
for maintenance. 

After recehing a comprehensive re- 
port on sites, needs and conditions from 
the Special Commission the Commission- 
ers of Lincoln Park selected all the four 
sites for small parks and playgrounds 
wliich were recommended. Active steps 
are now being taken to purchase the 
property and to sell the $500,009 of 
bonds authorized. Authority lias been 
given by the City Clerk and County 
Treasurer to issue these bonds. Suffi- 
cient breathing spaces and recreation 
grounds are now assured the densely 
populated parts of the North Side. 

It is to be deplored that the West 
Park Board came to a standstill after 
selecting three o^ the small park sites 
recommended by the Special Commission 
and offering $250,000 of bonds for sale. 
The leason given is that the bonds are 
not marketable owing to an alleged flaw 
in the act. That part of Chicago which 
stands in most need of these breathing 
spaces must wait two years or more un-

less public- spirited citizens of wealth 
rise to the needs of the occasion. 

In the matter of an outer belt system 
of parks and boulevards for the city and 
county the Special Commission is pre- 
paring a preliminary report. The County 
Board has provided for a Commission 
which will co-operate with the Special 
Comission along those lines. 

One new playground was established 
during the year, at Institute place and 
Orleans street, in a densely populated 
district. This recreation ground was 
made possible by private contributions, 
the principal benefactor being Miss Mar- 
{ garet S. Watson,* of Evanston. A total 
of nearly $1,000 was thus obtained and 
the Commission added another $1,000 
for equipment and maintenance. The 
free use of this site was given by the 
Northwestern Elevated Railroad Com- 
pany, making the second gift of the 
kind. This ground was taken over as 
part of the Municipal system late in the 
year, making eight playgrounds now in 
operation. A ninth one, on West Chica- 
go avenue near Lincoln street, is partly 
finished and will be opened during the 
summer. The free use of this site has 
been given the city.

top of the curb on each side of said al- 
ley intersections at the street line pro- 
duced of each of said above specified 
streets and shall slope thence at a uni- 
form grade to their intersection with the 
several gutters hereinbefore specified. 

Upon the several roadbeds thus pre- 
pared between the points hereinbefore 
specified and between said gutter flags 
shall be spread a layer of Portland ce- 
ment concrete six inches in thickness. 
The cement to be used shall be so ground 
that ninety-two per cent will pass 
through a standard No. 100 sieve hav-

cement. The stone shall be heated and 
thoroughly mixed with the asphaltie 
cement in the proportion of fifteen gal- 
lons of asphaltie cement to one cubic 
yard of stone. This, binder shall be 
spread on the base above described and, 
while in a hot and plastic condition, shall 
be rolled until it has a uniform thick- 
ness of one and one-half inches. The up- 
per surface shall be exactly parallel 
with and two inches below the finished 
surface of the pavement. 

Upon this "binder" course shall be laid 
a wearing surface or pavement proper, 
which shall be composed of asphaltie ce- 
ment seventeen parts, sand seventy-three 
parts and pulverized carbonate of lime 
ten parts. The sand and asphaltie ce- 
ment shall be heated separately to a 
temperature of three hundred degrees 
Fahrenheit. The pulverized carbonate 
of lime shall be mixed with the sand and 
these ingredients then mixed with the 
asphaltie cement at the above tempera-

Lake in the Island of Trinidad. 

The material for pavement, when 
mixed as above, shall be spread at a tem- 
perature of two hundred and fifty de- 
grees Fahrenheit. It shall be carefully 
spread by means of hot iron rakes in 
such manner as to give uniform and reg- 
ular grade to such a depth that after 
having received its ultimate compression 
it will have a thickness of two inches. 

The entire surface of the roadway thus 
improved shall then be compressed by 
hand rollers, after which natural hy- 
draulic cement, in the proportion of one 
barrel to each one thousand square yards 
of surface shall be swept over it, and 
the whole then thoroughly compressed 
by rolling with a steam roller of ten tons 
weight, the rolling being continued for 
five hours foT each one thousand square 
yards of surface. 

Six new catchbasins shall be construct-

feet two inches deep, measuring from the 
top of the brickwork, and shall have an 
internal diameter of four feet at the 
bottom and to a plane five feet above 
and parallel therewith. The walls of said 
catchbasins shall be eight inches thick 
and shall be built of two courses of 
sewer brick laid edgewise in perpendicu- 
lar courses,, except as hereinafter pro- 



vided, upon a fioor of pine plank two 
inches in thickness. The top of each of 
said catchbasins shall decrease to two 
feet internal diameter, being drawn in 
by means of nine header courses, the di- 
ameter being decreased uniformly for 
each course. 

Each of said catchbasins shall be con- 
nected with the sewer with vitrified tile 
pipe of nine inches internal diameter, 
and shall be trapped with a half trap 
also of vitrified tile pipe of nine inches 
internal diameter. The connection with 
the sewer where said sewer is of 
brick shall be made in such a man- 
ner that the top of the nine-inch pipe 
shall be at the elevation of the center of 
said sewer, and the connection with the 
sewer where said sewer is of vitrified tile 
pipe shall be made by means of a 
fifteen inches by nine inches "Y" branch 
where said sewer is of fifteen inches in- 
ternal diameter, and by means of a 
twelve inches by nine inches "Y" branch 
where said sewer is of twelve inches 
internal diameter. The said trap of each 
of said catchbasins shall be set so that 
the elevation of the bottom of the in- 
side of the same shall be three feet six 
inches above the floor of the catchbasin.

vided wdtli a cast-iron cover, with a pro- 
jecting lip to receive the' water from the 
gutters, each of which covers shall weigh 
four hundred and seventy pounds and 
shall be of the same size and pattern as 
those used in new work by the City of 
Chicago during the year 1902. Each of 
said east-iron covers shall be set so that 
the top of the same shall coincide with 
the finished surface of the pavement 
hereinbefore described. 

The nine- inch vitrified tile pipe speci- 
fied above shall be straight, smooth and

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 

Mayor's Office, ^ 
April 25, 1904. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of 

the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, with- 
out my approval, an ordinance passed 
at the last regular meeting of your 
Honorable Body, granting permission 
and authority to the Anheuser-Busch 
Brewing Association to construct, main- 
tain and operate a single railroad track 
from the tracks of the Chicago & North- 
western Railway Company to the prem- 
ises of said Anheuser-Busch Brewing As- 
sociation, in and along Helen court, from 
its intersection with Humboldt boule- 
vard, for the reason that said ordinance 
does not require that the track shall be 
located as shown on a plat which should 
be attached to the ordinance, and made 
a part thereof. No provision is made 
for the track to be so laid, constructed 
and maintained as to interfere as little 
as practicable with the use of said 



April 25, 



58 



1904 



street, nor is provision made for the 
grading and paving and keeping in re- 
pair of the portions of the street and 
sidewalk occupied by said track. 

Section 4 of the ordinance fixes the 
term at ten years, but the ordinance is 
not made subject to modification, amend- 
ment or repeal. The bond clause is not 
as broad as is usually required, and the 
compensation clause is indefinite, in that 
it does not provide when the compen- 
sation shall be paid, nor to whom. 
Moreover, the ordinance does not 
provide for the filing of an acceptance 
in writing by the grantee, nor fix the 
time when said acceptance and bond 
shall be filed. 

I have had amendments drafted em- 
bodying said suggestions, and respect- 
fully recommend their adoption without 
the usual reference to a committee. 
Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Maijor. 

Amend an ordinance passed April 11, 
1904, granting permission and authority 
to the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Asso- 
ciation to construct, maintain and oper- 
ate a single railroad track, connecting 
its premises with the tracks of the Chi- 
cao and Northwestern Railway .Com- 
pany, in and along Helen court, from its 
intersection with Humboldt boulevard, 
which ordinance is printed at pages 53 
and 54 of the current Council Proceed- 
ings, as f olloAvs : 

Amend Section 1 of the ordinance by 
inserting after the word "direction," in 
the seventh line of the left-hand column 
at page 54, the following: "substantial- 
ly as shown on the plat of the proposed 
track, which is attached hereto, marked 
'Exhibit A,' and made a part of this 
ordinance."

tion 1 of the ordinance:

be so laid, constructed and maintained 
that it shall interfere as little as prac- 
ticable with the use of said street, and 
that said track shall at all times be 
kept in such condition as to allow the 
free use and easy passage of vehicles 
along and OA^er said street."

sioner of Public Works may, from time 
to time, make for the grading, paving 
and keep in repair of the portions of the

track, and if said grantee, its successors 
or assigns, shall make default in any of- 
the above requirements, then after five 
days' notice being given to them, the 
City of Chicago may do such work and 
collect the expense thereof from the said 
grantee, its successors or assigns." 

Strike out Section 3 of the ordinance 
and insert in lieu thereof the following: 

"Xo work shall be done under author- 
ity of this ordinance until a permit au- 
thorizing the same shall be issued by the 
Commissioner of Public Works, and no 
permit shall issue until the grantee 
herein shall execute ta the City of Chi-

any time before the expiration thereof, 
be subject to modification, amendment or 
repeal, and in case of repeal, all privil-

Busch Brewing Association, within thir- 
ty days from the date of the passage,

ance, in writing, of this ordinance and

Very respectfully yours,

tion, 

J. C. Thompson, 

President. 
Attest: 

B. G. Robinson, 
Secretary. 

Whereas, Much comment has lately 
been made as to the operation of the 
Building Department and the fitness of 
the Hon. George Williams to hold the 
office of Commissioner of this Depart- 
ment; and 

Whereas, INIr. Williams was appoint- 
ed to this office by His Honor, Carter H. 
Harrison, Mayor of Chicago, upon the 
advice and recommendation of the Chi- 
cago Masons & Builders' Association, 
and kindred organizations, — he being the 
unanimous choice of these bodies; and 

Whereas, The members of this Asso- 
ciation, being practical builders and 
knowing the value of a practical and 
honest man as Building Commissioner, 
have noted with the greatest degree of 
satisfaction the tremendous improvement 
in the working of this Department under 
the active, able and fearless management 
of Mr. Williams, particularly in the or- 
dinance relating to fire escapes; in the 
minuteness by which the plans of tene- 
ment houses are examined and passed 
upon : in the general all-round thorougli- 
ness of the inspection of new buildings; 
in the almost entire absence of Special 
Ordinance permits being passed by the 
City Council during Commissioner Will- 
iams' term of office, and of many other 
good and wholesome reforms brought 
about during his regime ; and 

Whereas, Much unjust criticism has 
been made against Commissioner Will-

port in the furthering of the reforms he

Total 645.42 

I am unable to give you the location 
of all of the connections which we de- 
sire. The following have, however, been 
determined upon : 

1-0 in. connection with your main in 
33d street, 192 feet east of the east line 
of Shields avenue. 

Several 4 in. and 2 in. connections 
with your 6 in. main in Goodspeed av- 
enue, between 50th and 51st streets. 

Several 4 in. and 2 in. connections 
with your 6 in. main in Paulina street, 
between 44th and 45th streets. 

The exact number and location of 
these smaller connections named in the 
last two paragraphs I am unable at this 
time to give you, as the water supply 
plan of, these two parks has not been 
finally approved. We expect to com- 
mence the work of filling in these parks 
immediately, and if we can obtain the 
necessary permission for the water pipe 
connection without delay it would great- 
ly facilitate our work. 

Anything you can do to expedite the 
matter will be greatly appreciated by 
the Park Commissioners. 
Very respectfully.
